Dancers Unite – The Premier Dance Studio of Charlotte!
You can learn more about our 2015 Recital here.
Welcome to Dancers Unite, a dance studio based in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte.
In 2009, my sister, mother and I embarked on a lifelong dream of my sister’s and mine: to open up our own dance studio. We wanted to create a studio from which my sister and I would have loved to take classes and my mother would have loved to bring her daughters to every week. We wanted to create a studio where the hopes and dreams of the students and parents were of the upmost importance and were reflected in the dance studio’s decisions.
We feel very blessed the way the studio has grown over the years and we invite you to join us in our dream dance studio!

Come see for yourself in our Dance School Gallery.
• Have longer classes than toddler classes in the area
• Start at age 2
• Use curriculum specifically designed by Dancers Unite to balance fun & serious learning
• Teach fundamental ballet & tap steps as opposed to just movement activities
• Feature even our youngest students in our dance studio's highly professional yearly dance recital
#5 Personal Attention
Our dance studio limits the size of our dance classes to make sure each student receives individual attention. We limit class size to 15 and for our preschool dance classes we have at least a 5 to 1 student/teacher ratio.
Our dance studio is centrally located in the Dilworth neighborhood, a wonderful safe neighborhood in Charlotte just south of Uptown Charlotte, easily accessible to many great Charlotte neighborhoods. We are also within walking distance of LYNX Light Rail.
#7 Family Owned & Operated
Dancers Unite is owned by Julie & Elizabeth Emery with their mother Jo Emery. They have lived in the Charlotte area for more than twenty years (Julie & Elizabeth are honor graduates of Charlotte Catholic High School, where Julie was salutatorian in 2000). All three strive to give Dancers Unite a family atmosphere. With Julie & Elizabeth teaching the majority of the classes and Jo working as the office manager every day, you can feel your child will be well cared for every week in a consistent manner.
#8 Pom Squad
In addition to having a Competition Dance Company, we also have a Pom Squad available to students ages five and older of all levels where students perform a pom routine in Cheerleading & Dance Competitions, also the only one of its kind in the Myers Park/Dilworth/SouthPark/Eastover/Elizabeth area.
Dancers Unite offers multiple dance classes from age 2 to adult dance classes in:
Ballet * Pointe * Hip Hop * Contemporary * Jazz * Tap * Lyrical *
Acro * Tumbling * Modern * Cheerdance * Creative Movement
#10 Positive Atmosphere
Dancers Unite strives to instill proper dance instruction in a positive environment. We strive to instruct in a positive atmosphere rather than screaming at or belittling students. We work hard to live up to our name, “Dancers Unite”, by giving the studio a family feel where students work together rather than be competitive with one another.
